Two famous Iranian musicians have collected almost 300 kinds of traditional Iranian musical instruments during the past 20 years and used them as the main collection of Isfahan Music Museum (IMM).

This first private music museum of Iran really deserves a visit. The main objective of the exhibition museum is to make people acquainted with visitors of all nationalities who come to Isfahan. The small, private museum is very well organized and has knowledgeable owners and hospitable staff. The gig in the museum studio is professionally set, tasnimnews.com reported.

A guided trip to this site is worth every penny you spend. You can become familiar with a variety of Persian musical instruments and sense the traditional Persian music with your hearts. You will enjoy a live impromptu recital using Persian instruments.

Thus you can feel the unexpected delight of listening to traditional Iranian music when you attend this concert. Those who visit Isfahan Music museum can also become familiar with the way certain musical instruments are made by the artists. You are allowed to touch the instruments, play music and have a truly magical and memorable experience during your visit to this unique museum.

Visitors to Isfahan Music Museum are taken aback by the variety of national and ethnic Persian musical instruments inside the museum. This wonderful place is equipped with many instruments that do not exist even in Europe or other continents.

The museum has on display the ‘kamancheh’ (supposedly the predecessor to the modern musical instrument the violin), the ‘tar’ (supposedly the forebear of the guitar), drum-like instruments such as the ‘tonbak’ and ‘daf’ which are loved the most by foreign tourists, the ‘ney’, ‘santour’, harp and many other traditional Persian musical instruments.

The descriptions are given in both English and Persian. After a guided individual or group tour, your visit will hone to perfection by small, friendly performances of traditional love songs and Persian poetry by modern masters.

IMM was established in 2015 through immense efforts and dedication of its founders. World famous VIPs such as the director of Louvre Museum have also had the chance of watching live traditional Iranian music in this fantastic museum. Within a short period following its inauguration, the museum had the honor of receiving two international awards — most recently from the International Council of Museums (ICOM) for being the best private museum in Iran.
